AMP to host family day June 23

Quesnel's Antique Machinery Park invites the public to a fun day with lots of special events

There’s a party brewing at the Antique Machinery Park, June 23 and organizers would like you to bring the whole family for a full day of special events, kids activities, demonstrations, music and lots of displays and booths with lots to see and do.

Launching the park’s Family Fun Day will be the piping in of Mayor Mary Sjostrom and other city officials.

All day long you can watch traditional native dancing and enjoy traditional food. Two local bands will provide entertainment and several local antique vehicle enthusiasts will be bringing their beautiful rides to the park.

For a unique experience, view the fully operational antique sawmill, a fascinating blacksmith demonstration and discover the power of the rescue jaws of life. First Nations dancing and traditional native food will also be available throughout the day.

Feeling lucky? You could be the top bid on any one of several excellent silent auction items.

Plan to purchase lunch from one of several food vendors on site and enjoy a complimentary coffee from the members of the Antique Machinery Park.

The park is located just off Highway 97, 12 km south of downtown Quesnel, with plenty of signage.

And, as the name suggests, there are thousands of artifacts to see both inside and outside the museum.

In fact, many of the most fascinating are too big to move inside.

With lots of activity around the park, organizers are confident they’ll be ready to receive the many visitors they expect will come out to enjoy the day.

They’ve even arranged for a certified babysitter to ensure children have a good time while parents and grandparents take in all the park events.

Games and activities specifically to entertain the children will keep the whole family happily occupied.

There’s no admission fee but donations are always gratefully accepted.
